Debbie Kepitis buys foal of champion racehorse Winx for record $10 million


The first foal of champion Australian racehorse Winx has been bought by Debbie Kepitis for a record $10 million, The Australian Financial Review reported.

Kepitis part-owned Winx and is the daughter of chicken king Bob Ingham and nephew of Jack.

She bought the 18-month-old filly, sired by Australian champion stallion Pierro, on the second day of trading at the Inglis Australian Easter Yearling Sale at Warwick Farm.

The sale smashed the previous Australian record of $5 million for a yearling, paid for a half-brother to Black Caviar in 2013.

There are few horses of the calibre of Winx: the retired Australian thoroughbred champion won 37 of 43 career starts and made more than $26.4 million in prize money for her owners.

Tom Magnier, principal of Coolmore Australia stud where Winx is based, confirmed on Monday that the champion mare was in foal again.
